The NCAA T&F Division I Championships and the New Balance High School T&F Championships were held this past weekend. Here are the results:
Emerging Elite Division:
- Dan Feidler of Manalapn HS finished 4th
- Brendan Loftus of Red Bank Regional Fouled out (he had some very impressive fouls)
- Nick Morse of Christian Brothers Academy Fouled out (he also had some impressive fouls)
All in all the Emerging Elite was ok. Dan did well and had a bigger foul throw so we know he has more in the tank! Brendan dropped bombs but couldn’t hold them in. A correction on his competition approach will have to be worked on. Brendan likes to get amped up which, yes, you need to be excited when throwing but you also need to be patient and let the technique work. He is still ranked the NJ #1 Junior! We have much more to accomplish! Nick Morse threw well but just couldn’t hold them in. He showed that his technique is coming together but it’s not quit there! He is ranked #2 Junior behind Brendan.
Emma Vasen of Ocean Twp. HS demonstrated why she is so damn good! She threw 45ft to tie for 6th place but the tie went to the other athlete because she had a better second mark. Emma finished 7th. On her last attempt she unleashed a MONSTER throw of 48+ft but couldn’t hold it. If she would have saved that throw then she would have won! Emma now moves onto Softball. She is about a dozen home-runs off the NJ Career State Record! She plans on competing in the shot put as an unattached athlete to stay on top of her technique and to compete at the New Balance Outdoor T&F Championships in June.
Division I NCAA Championships:
Andrew Liskowitz, formally of CBA, is now a sophomore at The University of Michigan. Andrew went into the competition ranked 16th and finished 14th. It wasn’t the performance he was looking. This is his second showing at the NCAA Championships. The more experience the better the results!
Now we move onto outdoors!
